Philadelphia Eagles hire Bill Musgrave as QB coach

On Monday, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced a new hiring within their coaching staff. Bill Musgrave, formerly the Offensive Coordinator of the Minnesota Vikings for the last three years, was introduced as the Eagles’ new quarterbacks coach.

Musgrave will be the third quarterbacks coach that Eagles starting QB Nick Foles has been coached by. According to ESPN,

Musgrave, 46, will be Nick Foles’ third position coach in less than two calendar years in the NFL. Doug Pederson, the longtime NFL backup quarterback who worked with Foles in his rookie season, went with Andy Reid to Kansas City. Pederson is Reid’s offensive coordinator.

Bill Lazor, who was hired from the University of Virginia last winter by Chip Kelly, moved on to become offensive coordinator of the Miami Dolphins. Lazor was the hands-on coach who worked directly with Foles through his breakout 2013 season.

Nick Foles will be an upgrade at QB for Musgrave, who worked with Christian Ponder, Matt Cassell and Josh Freeman while with the Vikings.
